What happened to the Swine Flu epidemic that frightened us all so much (not to mention the Bird Flu epidemic)? Swine Flu did kill some people here in the US, but Bird Flu seems never to have made it to these shores (and may only have been transmitted directly from poultry, not between people). Could these warnings be some sort of disinformation campaign from big pharmaceutical companies that stand to make millions from medicines (such as Tamiflu) and vaccines? Once initiated, well meaning people could then take up the warning and spread it far and wide.
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) is launching an investigation into this. They will focus especially on the drug industry's influence on the World Health Organization (WHO). PACE represents 47 European countries.
On the Global Researcher website, F. William Engdahl quotes epidemiologist Wolfgang Wodarg as saying that the WHO's Swine Flu campaign is "one of the greatest medicine scandals of the Century."
Engdahl quotes the PACE resolution as saying, "In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies, responsible for public health standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines. The 'bird flu' campaign (2005-06) combined with the 'swine flu' campaign seem to have caused a great deal of damage not only to some vaccinated patients and to public health budgets, but to the credibility and accountability of important international health-agencies."
